Brexit Phase Two - Trade

So the posts on ARRSE are when I need a few minutes away from the document to stop my brain going dead.
Mission fail.
I suspect other posters don't have the same excuse.
WFH, my boss loves my productivity and I'm now finished after a 04:30 start. Cheerio.
 
Not so. The Majority of the UK Business don't want Brexit.
The Majority of the UK population don't want Brexit

(there was a vote a long time ago where people were duped and lied to but the majority was very small... less then 2% and all the votes since then have had way bigger swings)
Total Bollocks! - produce your evidence! the truth is there has been very little movement of the public from where the referendum left off because people are even more dug in! poll after poll shows that the 'majority' whether leave or remain, just want the govt to get on with it! as for business, you are slightly correct, BIG business (10% ish) is strongly remain but don't forget 80% of ALL UK businesses have no dealings with the EU so are ambivalent

HMG will cancel Brexit at the 11th hour and rest assured they can still remain in power.

They have form for safe betting, what with gambling on the 'right' referendum result and calling an early GE etc.etc.

Whatever path they choose, I for one have the utmost faith in their promises and competence to deliver.
 
Your analysis has been more often wrong than not, so you’ll naturally understand if people don’t pay too much attention to your proclamations of the greatness of Theresa May, the ineffectiveness of Robbins, or my personal favourite, the collapse of the EU. ^^
You’re analysis has been wrong more often than not.

In fact people tend to cherry pick information that backs up what they’re saying.

For example, @Graculus believed that the brexit vote would lead to a massive exodus of EU academics. Loads of articles backing that up.

Reality is there’s more than ever. That’s not covered now or mentioned.
 
Says the man with the ROPS banner, with no hint of self awareness at all. ^^
Did you put any thought into that post?
It may, or may not be of interest to you that I have no idea why I'm RoP'd. It's very worrying, I'm scared of pixels.

Do remember that 80% of British business outside retail* rely on the 10% to give them orders.

*Retail is going to the dogs... or Amazon (and others) and they are very good at not paying UK tax.

51.9% v 48.1% is a little more than "less than 2%", maths isn't exactly your fortè is it?

Or an accurate analysis of the situation....

Surely worth framing in gold to add with your other outstanding comments? You're too shy....
 
Six weeks off! They'll be slaving away in their constituencies. You've been wibbling away on here as far back as I can remember.
Five minutes ago?
 
There will be no trade deals after a hard Brexit as all the companies that can move will do.
Cue government legislating for an "uprooting tax," payable by any company wishing to move operations overseas?

Mind you, something along those lines in place years ago might have negated the offshoring of British jobs to Indian call centres and Malaysian hoover factories to some extent - the cost of so doing being negated by a punitive levy, collected each year the company maintains a registered office of operates here. Might see Amazon and Google paying their way here, too.

However I think that the EU would bend the rules (totally out of charater of course :) ) to permit a cancel at the 11th our if needed.
See my post above re: seizing the opportunity to force us into the € and Schengen.

Andy, stop making stuff up eh? You're only embarrassing yourself, same as you did with the Force de Frappe.

I feel obliged to challenge what you've posted -
Businesses don't get to vote.

Businesses haven't had a vote. Businesses do not have the capacity to vote. You have no idea of how the owners of businesses have voted. There may have been polls but polls do not equate to a vote.

There was only one vote, at the referendum. There's been no votes since. You've no idea what the result would be now, should the same question be put to referendum again.

Someone pointing out that the number of voters voting leave was less than 51% of the registered electorate will be along in five...four...three...........

Just over 37% of the total electorate voted to leave.
